Biodynamic

Biodynamic agriculture is a method of organic farming originally developed by Rudolf Steiner that employs what proponents describe as "a holistic understanding of agricultural processes". One of the first sustainable agriculture movements, it treats soil fertility, plant growth, and livestock care as ecologically interrelated tasks, emphasizing spiritual and mystical perspectives. Proponents of biodynamic agriculture, including Steiner, have characterized it as "spiritual science" as part of the larger anthroposophy movement.

  • Bio & The Heavy D: Qupe’s Biodynamic Grenache

    … to it. But why? Yes it has elements of an “airy fairy” quality, lunar aspects and some mystical elements, which I’m not getting into here. Of course, if treating the earth you farm with the utmost respect is bad, well, I then clearly don’t understand farming.

  • Finally A Balanced View of Biodynamics

    … such a piece, and Anne Krebiehl’s posting in Harper’s entitled “Why Biodynamic Wines Need to Change Their Communication”1 takes a balanced and questioning view of Biodynamic winemaking practice rather than a dismissively judgmental one.
